Barrels are loot containers found in many indoor areas. They often appear in clusters or rows.

Barrels block movement and projectile attacks until opened. They can be opened by clicking or by being hit by attacks from either players or monsters. Each barrel only has a small chance of containing an item.

Barrels have a chance of exploding for a small amount of AoE damage when opened.
